I've lived here for a couple of years but haven't found many good roads (admittedly, I haven't had many opportunities to find them, either).

I know Wisconsin has its fair share of good sporty roads but what about the Twin Cities area? I know that headed down toward Red Wing, it turns okay but that road also has a bit too much traffic of the four wheel variety to keep speed at a fun level. Where do all of you ride on weekends or weeknights? Any favorite roads?

Any recommendations you might have would be very appreciated. Thanks.

Tut tut tut young Obi Wan. You have much to learn. Hastings - Treasure Island - Welsh - Vasa. Just to name one quick evening ride.

There are some nice bits to the North and West. Look at the map. Start at Delano and make a big circle all the way to Cambridge. Wright county is full of nice bits,the Elk River-St. Francis-Cambridge section is also good. My own little short putt is from here in Champlin out to Hanover(nice little park on the Crow river w great well water for refreshment)circling back through Dayton.GJ

Fellow viffer! Let me know if you ever want to go road exploring, I've only lived up here for a year so I'm still learning what roads are nice to ride.

Stagecoach is under construction, fyi... And Welch is fun, but also well known, with the LEO's too, and I've heard crazy stories about a dude that lives on that road that likes to jump out into the line around the corner trying to crash people. Lots of other little odds and ends, want to learn more? Show up to a ride.
